Living the High Life

This poor man sits endlessly up on top of a high pillar, and he looks quite miserable too!  I tried to find out some information about him, but no luck.  His pillar marks an old gateway into the botanical gardens, but he is best seen (and sketched) from a quiet corner of the park nextdoor.  He's so high up nobody ever tidies up  the weeds growing out of the top, so he remains up there in his slightly unkempt glory!

Your drawing reminds me of many of the buildings I saw while in Freiburg, Germany this past fall. Your work is beautiful.

Well, he's obviously a pillar of the community. What a good subject though - well spotted. x

Simply beautiful =) He was probably waiting for a ladder or someone to get him down from there

I love this view - it gives me the feeling of being there, looking up, and discovering him myself. :)

This is a difficult perspective, but you have made a very good work, giving to this unfortunate statue a moment of glory!
